While passing the ruling the court upheld an existing law that allows the use of unused embryos after the treatment and is permitted for research. The law also allows fertility clinics to discard the frozen embryos after five years of the fertilisation treatment .
“The human embryos that are in their early stage and are not implanted into a mother’s womb cannot be seen as human life forms,” this is what ruling meant as reiterated by the court official.
The ruling came in the wake of a petition filed by a group of people who included some pro-life activists to challenge the court’s ruling against the existing bioethics law prevailing in the country that allows the use of leftover embryos for research.
Not a surprise that after this ruling the existing stem cell research firms have bolded their move and their prices in the share market have gone high.
